Kensington Palace Pavilion


in Kensington & Hyde Park

Temporarily replacing the Orangery restaurant while it undergoes restoration until 2021, what the Kensington Palace Pavilion lacks in history it makes up for with the same excellent menu of breakfasts, light lunches and the standout afternoon tea. The sandwiches, scones and cakes stacked high on their elegant tiers are just the thing for refuelling after a visit to Kensington Palace itself.

To really stick your pinky finger out, go for the Royal Afternoon Tea (£88), while the children's afternoon tea (£16) is also available for young tea-quaffers.
